Mouse Not Working

Q: Mouse Not Working

Hi all,

My mouse randomly freezes for short instants of time, then works again. I use a corded Logitech MX518 mouse through a USB port in WinXP. When it happens, the cursor freezes, the red light from underneath the mouse stops, and windows makes the usual "a USB device has been unplugged/plugged-in" sound. The frequency of the freezing is much higher when I play CounterStrike. If the mouse is left alone, it does not appear to ever freeze.

Rebooting seems to midly alleviate the problem, but very temporarily. I've tried other USB ports to no avail and I have a 420 watt power supply. When I use the PS2 adapter, the frequency of the freezing is considerably lower, but if it does go out with a PS2 I'm pretty much screwed as Windows will not re-detect my mouse. I use default drivers, not Logitechs, but I did have this same problem ages ago with my Microsoft IntellMouse 3.0. If anyone has a similar problem, please mention it and the things you tried, successful or not. Thanks for you help.

Take it easy,

Think I found my problem. When looking through my system information, I found the following device conflicts. Ironically enough, one exists with the USB + video card. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Mouse Not Working

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

There is a setting in BIOS setup to assign an IRQ for VGA (under pnp). You can disable it if you like.

I had this problem after a Win 10 update. The mouse stopped working both USB and Bluetooth. I tested a different mouse and that didn't work either. Touchpad worked fine. So I called Dell tech support and they suggested I uninstall Windows update and re-install the chipset drivers that they provided. I did both and mouse still didn't work. Then tech support suggested I do a Windows Restore. Again that did not solve the problem. Then they suggested I do a Windows reinstall. At this point I got annoyed since I have 30 programs that I use for my business and a total Win re-install is out of to question. I thought there must be another simpler way to solve this problem. So I did an online search and found a fix. It was a very simple problem and needed a very simple fix:
I was able to fix this problem by adding a missing MultiString value to this registry key:
Value Type: Multi String
Value Name: UpperFilters
Value: mouclass
An article that explains it in a very round-about way is here:
The Multi String Value Name: UpperFilters was missing so I added it and the mouse started working and everything is good to go!
I was very disappointed with the Dell support team I contacted. They gave me the run around for 3 days for such a sim... Read more

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

Hi, sorry, not very good at this sort of thing, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

1) Thursday night - mouse was working. Sunday evening, mouse is not working.
2) In the device manager it tells me I have two HID-compliant mouse drivers, location: "On USB Input Device" - I only have one USB input for my mouse. I tried disabling one of the drivers to see if it was a conflict problem. No luck.

Hello, i happened to have a problem lately with mouse and mouse pointer. Yesterday i was playing a game and my pc suddenly started freezing and laging. So i hard reset him after that i boot into windows 8 and my mouse wasnt working at all. And pointer was no were to be seen either. Today i tried restoring pc but that dont help me. In bios and in advance startup options mouse is working. So i assume its in the windows. My specs are:
windows 8.1
gigabyte z77-hd3
intel core i5-3570k 3.8ghz
16 gb ram
Western digital 1TB HDD
nvidia geforce gtx 650 1GB
fsp 750W PSU
I tried everything except reinstalling windows (OS was installed week ago).

A:Mouse pointer dissapear-mouse not working

I have heard of stability issues on those Gigabyte motherboards where people are having those problems with their mice.

Is your BIOS up to date? maybe it will contain an update on the website for the BIOS that improves system stability.

Is this a PS2 Mouse, or a USB mouse. If a USB, disconnect and then reconnect. If its a USB mouse that is wireless, make sure the battery is good, and if you have another computer, do a test.

Also try to boot from your Windows Installation Media and see if your mouse shows there, could give it a try.

If freezing and lagging during gaming, then could be possible overheating. Do you have a program installed like HWmonitor checking your CPU and GPU thermals. Make sure they aren't getting to hot.

If problem continues to persist. I would start troubleshooting. If you have another computer. or spare hard disk that is SATA, try installing windows on that, and try to duplicate the issue, if it comes back, rule out the hard drive.

Next would be either the GPU, RAM, or Motherboard. You would have to stress test the GPU by using Furmark, or similar program, like MSI Kombuster. If GPU stress test passes, move on to Memory.

while computer is powered down, and PSU off or unplugged. remove and reseat the memory modules, making sure they are fully seated, Do memory diagnostics with memtestx86 or something similar, and do a few passes, If memory check passes, Its more than likely there is a problem with the motherboard.

Weird problem for sure. You... Read more

Recently I installed a Microsoft wireless mouse and it is working. But the wired mouse is now sporadic and at times freezes. I have unplugged the wireless mouse and rebooted several times. Even did a system restore.
Also an Excel spreadsheet stopped working with the wired mouse just freezing the screen completely. Even after rebooting, the Excel will open and eventually I will get a cross hair image. I have tried to update the driver on the wired mouse but it says I already have the most uptodate one. I am running Windows 10 64 bit. I scanned with Malware antimalware and it eliminated over 300 items. I am not sure what is going on.
I hope I don't have a virus. I have Norton 360 with my Comcast subscription but now I cannot even see it in my taskbar. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens in Control Panel when I try to uninstall.
I have a Dell XPS desktop. As I write the wired mouse is not functioning. If I unplug the mouse and put it back in the mouse port it works for a minute or so and then just dies. I don't even see the red light at the bottom of the mouse sometimes. I just unplugged the wired mouse and now it is working. So it is very odd behavior. I imagine by the time I post this the wired mouse will freeze again as has been the case. In the interim while I wait for a reply, I'll contact Comcast and see if they can help me with the Norton virus software issue.

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.


A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

But the cursor dont move when i move the mouse. when i drag the cable out and in again the ligh wont turn on. i change usb port and it works. 1-3 days later the same thing happends and i change to the previous one.

And if i put anything else in the port that stops working it wont recognize. its like it temporarely dies.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

Hey folks,

This is very frustrating and I am at my wits end. I have tried 5 different wireless mice and two wireless keyboards with nearly no success.

Hardware tried:

HP Wireless mouse. Returned to store.
Logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard combo
Logitech m325 (two different ones)
iHome Mouse (works best actually)
Logitech v220 wireless mouse (very old)
Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard 1000

With all of the mice I experience issues where the pointer disappears or seems stuck on elements on the screen, for example, the pointer seems to get stuck on the edges of windows. Pointer motion is erratic at best. With the mk320 and m325 mice the pointer does not stay in one place long enough along with the windows scroll up or down a line or two which leaves me with the pointing device version of "whack-a-mole" attempting to click on something. The v220 is a very old mouse and while it works is resolution is fairly low.

With the microsoft mouse it sometimes stops working and needs to be reset. The keyboard does the same and needs batteries removed and replaced. Sometimes that doesnt work and I need to reboot.

With the keyboard on the mk320 combo some keys don't work consistently and sometimes no keys work. Cycling power fixes the no keys issues, moving the keyboard away from the computer fixes the keys that don't work consistently otherwise.

This issue has persisted with windows 8.0 and 8.1 with two different motherboards. At no point has the wireless transceiver a... Read more

I?ve got a Vista computer running service pack 2
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU [email protected]
RAM 4.00 GB
32 bit operating system

Quite often the mouse stops working. It?s not the mouse itself that it is the problem as the same mouse works on other computers okay. It also makes no difference if it?s a wireless mouse, a USB mouse or a serial mouse.
Restarting the computer doesn?t fix the mouse problem. However if I turn off the computer unplug all connections, (mouse, monitor, speakers etc) reconnect them all again, turn back on the computer the mouse will work for another day or two.
What I?ve done is take it to a computer repair place who replaced the power supply; I?ve since taken it back to the same computer repair shop when the replacing of the power supply hasn?t worked. However they seem incapable of fixing this problem, because of course once they connect a mouse, monitor etc the mouse starts to work again.
Additional Information:
If I look on "Human Interface Devices" on that computer it only shows one device. It says that a Microsoft USB wheel mouse is working correctly, but the mouse in question on that computer is actually a serial mouse. None of the USB ports etc are showing up (?)

Anyone have any suggestions? (My computer knowledge is complete beginner) Maybe this is a hardware problem and perhaps I shouldn't be here...if so please forgive me and be kind

As part of trying to install a new joystick on my computer I was adviced to remove all entries under HID Devices in Device Manager.

This led to my mouse, which was one of those entries, to stop working.
When I plug it in Windows will try to install a correct driver, but does not succeed.

I wonder if You could help me fix this somehow, as it is rather time consuming to use the computer, especially the internet, with only a keyboard.

I got into the Device Manager through Start->Run->devmgmt.msc, and the mouse is listed under HID Devices as "Optical USB Mouse", with the telltale yellow exclamation mark next to it. Its status is "This device is not configured correctly (Code 1)., and it shows no driver under the driver tab.

I just installed windows xp on my HP pavillion. i wanted to clean out the computer because i'm selling it. i could not find the backup of windows 98, however (the version it was running), so i used the disk of XP that came with my new computer.

Everything seemed to go ok, but now my mouse won't work (it is one of those plugs that's NOT a USB plug). i tried shutting down, unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in, and then restarting. but still nothing.

any ideas? please instruct clearly; i am not familiar with a lot of computer terms.

thank you! i'm trying to solve this problem because the person buying it is supposed to come over and pick it up!

A:Mouse not working

Well, a little bad news first - you can't sell it with XP installed, as it is a pirated license/already installed on another pc.

I suggest you first try a USB mouse. If it works, then wipe the drive, sell it without an operating system, and let the buyer know that you had a problem with the ps/2 mouse, but a USB mouse works fine.

There is a bit to this but basically any mouse I buy does not work with my computer. What happened was I moved my computer from one wall to another, but am using the same socket. The mouse I was using started randomly disconnecting from from the computer but then immediately reconnecting. So I decided to see if it was the usb port and tried it in all my other ones, and it had the same problem. So I figure its a problem with the mouse and I use a temporary mouse that the scroll wheel doesn't work. This mouse has no problems working in any of the usb slots. So then I buy a new wired mouse. This one won't work at all. Figure it might be defective, bring it back and buy a logitech M510 wireless mouse. This one will not work also. It works on all the other computers in my house except for mine. I've tried it in every usb slot. I have tons of other stuff plugged into the USB slots that work no problem. No idea what is wrong, anyone have any ideas?

RLBurget, Welcome to the HP Forum. Take a look at this guide:Fix Touchpad / ClickPad Note:  The Hard Reset procedure described in the file is used on notebooks - you posted in the Desktops section and your system description denotes a notebook.  If you do have the notebook described, then the Hard Reset may do the trick. Read over the file and then decide on your course of action based on what you may have already tried to fix the issue. Click the Kudos Star!It is a nice way to say ?Thank You? for the help.Although I strive to reflect HP's best practices, I do not work for HP.

A:mouse not working

The Microsoft Explorer mouse (the Blue Track version) is not an Intellimouse. Make sure you select the Explorer mouse when you install the software (or change it in the settings and reboot). Neither mouse uses PS/2. Both are USB mice. If there is a conflict, it's with your USB and PS/2. It has nothing to do with the mouse.

Try uninstalling the software and just use the mouse. Windows 98 and up already fully support the mouse and don't need the additional software.

I can load into BF 3 fine but when I get into the game, the mouse buttons won't work, I can move the cursor but not select any of the options, kits, etc.

Anyone else had this problem? I've only had it since upgrading to Windows 8 and adding another monitor.

Hi guys, sorry but this is really urgent. My PC running windows 7 64bit is unable to detect any mouse.

Here is the problem, recently i updated my nvdia graphic card drivers through DriverMax and together I suppose another intel driver which I can't really remember. Ever since then my mouse started having problem. It was fine the first few times I could simply restart my pc, but today it is completely down. I bought new mouse and it prompted Device drivers cannot be installed blah blah. I tried all ports nothing works. My keyboard/bluetooth dongle and all others devices are working fine except mouse. No mouse can be installed.

I have backed up my old drivers before updating using DriverMax but I can't figure out a way to restore it because no mouse is working and I can't choose anything using keyboard.

By the way, my motherboard is msi TP67B+

Please help.

A:All usb mouse not working

You should be able to select most things using arrow keys/tab/enter

Press win key to open start menu
Arrows to select control panel > enter
Arrows to mouse > enter
Select hardware tab then you have access to mouse drivers section

Alternatively hold win key and tap pause key to enter system properties then tap tab to select left list and enter on device manager

Hi all,

I've searched the forums and found some similar situations but none of the possible solutions worked for me.
My problem is that my usb mouse is correctly recognized by W7 x64 (no exclamation points in device manager) but it refuses to work, the mouse arrow doesn't moves...
The curious is that the first time I booted into W7, the mouse worked but in the next boots I had to "Deactivate" and "Activate" the mouse in the device manager.
I've already uninstalled/reinstalled the mouse and connected it to the other USB ports (wich I'm sure that works because I can connect pen drives that work flawlessly).
An additional note might be that this same mouse works fine under Vista (is there a way to use Vista generic drivers in W7?)

A:USB mouse not working

BUMP... Still unsolved!

Please ppl, someone post some thoughts/ideas to solve my problem... I can't understand why a simple usb mouse doesn't work with the W7 drivers... Is there such thing as incompatible mice with W7?

I have a HP ProBook 4710s.
The touchpad doesn't work properly, it can work a few minutes but then it just goes crazy and when I try to touch it the pointer goes everywhere and opens loads of programs or folders that I didn't even try to open. And it goes in random directions that I didn't even try to point it to.
So that's why I needed to use an USB mouse, but they can't work either.

I have a wireless USB mouse and one that is connected by wire but neither of them work.
They both used to and now they don't. I tried them at other computers but they work - the mouses aren't the problem.
It used to say "device not recognized " when I plug the one with a wire..But now it doesn't say anything and it doesn't work.

I reinstalled Windows but the problem is still here.

I tried deinstalling all the ports through device manager but the problem remains.

I can plug in any other USB thingy..like a flash drive or my camera or something and it all works.

What could be the problem and how to solve it?

I have a Dell Vostro 200 running Windows XP. I bought a new keyboard and mouse but when it loads up the keyboard and mouse don't work. I tried connecting it to the internet so it could obtain the drivers automatically but that didn't work. I then tried to start in safe mode they still didn't work. I checked the BIOS and the USB was enabled. I ran Hiren's boot CD and both the mouse and keyboard work on the Hiren's mini XP OS. I'm stumped can anyone help me please.

I tried both rebooting to last know good config and restoring to an earlier config, neither worked. I am now downloading an XP ISO to try and use it to repair the OS on the PC.

Hi. I have a Acer Aspire E17 with a precision touchpad. The touchpad works, but I prefer the mouse. Sometimes when I am using the mouse I hear a strange sound then it stops working. It only lasts for about 10 seconds then the sound returns and the mouse works again. Can anyone pinpoint what the issue is. should I contact Acer? Any assistance will be helpful. Thank you. deanie44

A:mouse is not working right

how is the mouse connected, USB, bluetooth, wireless receiver? if it's USB, try a different port,

what is the sound? is it the windows chime when it recognizes a new device is plugged in?

 My mouse pad is not functioning properly. I can move the cursor around but when I tap the mouse pad it doesn't click, I have to click the button on the bottom and I also cannot scroll with the pad anymore. It was working this morning and then all of a sudden I could no longer click or scroll by the mouse pad. I already went to the setting and looked and it says that it's enabled and I even restored to the default setting because that helped last time but it didn't help this time.
